Whether you say futbol, futebol, voetbal, soccer, футбол, or calcio, you already know that football is the most popular sport on the planet. This World Cup Tournament final match will be the most-watched event in television history.
More than simply kicking a ball around, football stirs passions, and crosses every boundary of nationality, race, class, generations, and religion.
Football is played in every corner of the globe by every child who sees a moving ball and kicks it.
“Some people say football is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it’s much more important than that.” -Bill Shankley
